So today Britain hit its hottest July day on record and it has been bloomin' hot! I love summer and nice weather but I'm a bit of a wimp when its hot in England as I don't have a pool to jump in to cool down.
Drink ice water - When its hot, it's obvious that you should drink a lot of water. Putting a bottle full of water and putting it into the freezer for a bit is something everyone used to do in school and why not do it in the summer. It will keep you hydrated and ice will definitely cool you down.
Have a cold shower - So I had 3 cold showers today but how much better do you feel after one?! So much better!
Cool down your feet - Cooling down your feet will cool down your whole body. Dipping your tootsies in some ice is sure to make you feel better in the hot weather.
Make a DIY air conditioner - Position a shallow pan or bowl full of ice in front of a fan. The breeze will pick up cold water from the ices surface as it melts, creating a cooling mist.
Cold compresses on pulse points - This will make you so much cooler and feels very refreshing.
Shut your curtains - In the daytime, sunlight coming in will heat up the room so shutting the curtains will help keep your room cooler.
Hang out a wet towel - The breeze blowing in will quickly bring down the rooms temperature.
Hope these and tricks help you out in this hot weather (if it even lasts)!
